be your child-think again.
The drug problem is so pervasive, it lives comfortably right in front of our faces. If we all do not
wake up from our eternal state of denial we could
lose our children forever. We ALL make mistakes,
but there is no excuse for turning the other way.
We need to confront our children and say it is not
alright! We need to GET uncomfortable and be
militant in our resolve to protect our family - to
protect our children - to protect ourselves.
GET YOUR CHILDREN TESTED!!! Do not be concerned how the results will make you look - if they
test positive do something about it. I have chased
many kids away from my home. They do not like me
- I do not care. I will do anything and everything to
bring the the light to the darkness. Life should not
be a personality contest; although many times it is.
Parents! Stand up and protect your children! They
are using drugs in the schools. They are using
drugs at Soccer game and they are using drugs at
home! These kids are from good homes - they are
not the gangs and thugs. They could be your
children or grand-children. They can easily hide
behind good grades, doing their chores, being
polite and saying all the right things. Of course we
want to believe our children are perfect - but
nobody is perfect. Good grades are not everything!
You can have a 4.00 GPA WHILE you are still
Kids are inquisitive and want to fit in. With the
immediacy of the web, kids can find anything at
any time! If their friends are doing it, they want to
do it - AND they want to share the “good news”
with EVERYONE! Do you have any clue what they
are viewing? It might shock you to know that
predators freely search the web contacting
thousands of unsuspecting, naive good kids each
day. These are our kids in our homes on our computers. As you watch TV or read a book before
dinner, your child may be talking to a predator.
If you do not monitor the computer it is like inviting
a thief in for dinner.
We need to wake up. These kids are smarter than
us. They know how to maneuver the web. Parental
controls only go so far. They can circumvent them
in one second through Google. They can get to any
Porn site in ten seconds! Kids have become so
DE-sensitized, they think it's funny! They are USED
to chopping off heads in Video games. They are
used to seeing movies like Texas Chainsaw
Massacre. They are used to “pretending” to feel.
So many of these kids laugh as they see an entire
family killed in a horror movie. In this High-Tech
world, nothing is scared! If these kids are glued to
Google, Video games and cell phones virtual reality
has BECOME reality! It is not too late to save our
children-to save ourselves-to save our country.
But we must start now.
Start by really LOOKING at their cell phones. Ask
yourself this question; Do you want your children
giving their personal information out to strangers
on “My Space?” You would be dumfounded at how
many kids freely share their most intimate
personal information through e-mails accessed
through their cell phones. Texting has become an
obsession! But Texting is NOT talking! Texting is
typing a message to convey information. It requires
NO voice, no human touch, no accountability, no
responsibility. It is evasively intrusive to the human
mind and spirit. It is not a form of “HUMAN”
Think about it- a teenager is synonymous with a
telephone! How many times have we all called out
to them: “Get off the phone-it's time for dinner!”
When you think of teenagers talking on the phone
don't you think of them giggling, talking about their
friends, school, dating, etc? When you tell them to
get off the phone don't they usually moan and say:
“OK, Mom!” That groan is usually followed with
the usual: “I have to go now...talk to you later.”
Well, think about it - how many of you hear that
anymore? Texting is silent - you will never know
who they are talking to or what they are saying.
The days of enjoying giggling teenagers on the
phone is over. Talking has turned into texting and
texting can be very destructive in the hands of
young inexperienced children.
We live in a dangerous DE-sensitized world that
has become a computerized mine field waiting to
entice the unexpecting child into Cyber Space.
People wake up - Cyber Space is NOT human!
It was created BY humans as a form of information
- not emotion. Speaking and touching, knowing and
understanding, crying and laughing - hugging those are the things that separate humans from
machines. Help bring emotion and intimacy back.
I miss hearing the sound of my child's voice.
Advocate for communication through speech!
When your kids' entire life becomes a texting
hypnotic trance, take the phone away! Texting can
become an addiction that produces instant gratification that can have no end. It is not innocent fun.
And innocence lost can never be found again. It is
a terrible thing to lose-for all of us.
